Assuming you celebrate Christmas, the festive holiday season won’t be complete without a nice Norwegian Spruce sitting pride of place in your living room. While the Norwegian government give the UK a rather large Christmas tree for Trafalgar Square every year, if you want one, you are going to have to stick your hand in your pocket and buy one from a local shop who has started selling them out of a pub car park, or somewhere similar.
When buying your tree, be conscious of the fact that the person you are purchasing it from may have been getting into the festive spirit and indulged in a few mulled wines before serving you. If this is the case, their careless handling of your tree may result in you being injured in an accident that was not your fault.
Fear not though; if this were to happen to you, there will be a chance you might be able to use the services of injury solicitors in Chobham or a firm such as Accident Advice Helpline to sue for compensation.
Although they do not have injury solicitors in Chobham Accident Advice Helpline can still represent you and your claim. This is because they are a national firm that works across the whole of the UK. So if you need injury solicitors in Chobham look no further than this expert service.
Christmas tree accidents and injury solicitors
Picture the scene. You have selected your tree, handed over your money and your Spruce vendor runs your item through one of those metal tubes that applies netting over them. Keen to move onto the next sale, your tree salesman yanks out the tree with unnecessary force, causing its trunk to hit you in the mouth, relieving you of a couple of teeth in the process. If you can prove that this incident occurred as the result of your tree salesperson’s negligence, you may be able to use the services of an injury solicitor and sue for compensation.
You will need to take care to make sure you gather the proof you will need to launch a case, especially if you sustained your injury while making a purchase from an independent trader. You will typical have an easier time suing an established retailer than you will a one-man band whose only set up for a few weeks before Christmas. Take down your trader’s contact details, as well as those of anybody who might have witnessed what happened to you. Taking photographs will also be a good idea. Take a picture of your negligent assailant’s number plate if they refuse to give you the contact details you need.
